1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    This might seem like a rather odd idea, but I was thinking about installing a Pioneer Appradio 2 to control my phone on my car stereo. I can't justify spending who knows what on installation costs when all I want is to hear my Pandora through my stereo and conveniently able to switch apps. Then I thought about a possible workaround, using my steering wheel. It has Volume/Channel up/down and a Mode button.

    1. Is there a way to integrate my steering wheel buttons into switching volume, changing tracks and switching modes while still being able to use it with my existing stereo? I have an AM/FM radio w/ CD player and also a tape deck.
    2. Is there a way to hook up a backup camera to your Smartphone via bluetooth?
    My current setup is Smartphone to Bluetooth to tape deck adapter to stereo. I had the car dock for my RAZR MAXX but the audio went bad on it.

    The car has a special interface and i have never seen where any one has done what you are talking about .
    I was trying to get the steering wheel buttons on my saturn ourlook to run the Bluetooth like the factory onstar does.
    I found a guy who did an adapter and it was no easy task. It was limited to a few makes of cars at that time and you had to disconnect the onstar hardware.
    I can look on my computer later and post the link. Maybe it has advanced further now.
